The Crumbly Remnant!


Yesterday I happened to come across the remaining half-slice of my (last-Friday’s) birthday cake. I couldn’t possibly see it go to waste. After all it’ll be 361 days at least until the experience can be repeated…

The birthday cake is finished
The candles have all burnt down
The last half-slice is orphaned
Not enough left to go round

I’d better end its misery
Pop it in my mouth
Savor the very last morsel
My bulk is moving south!

But my little Granddaughter
Her first words said with ease
Pointed towards her gaping mouth
And said to me “CAKE PLEASE!
